Two weekends ago, the Barrett family gathered at Camp Don Lee to say our final goodbye's to Paw Paw and sprinkle his ashes in the Neuse River just off of Don Lee's pier. We also gathered to dedicate the (still unfinished) "Troy and Robbie Barrett Cabin" to God's glory and service. It was a glorious Saturday (warm and breezy), a perfect day to gather and remember. Mary Beth, Matt, Tim, Mike, and I tossed an ultimate disc around before lunch, and then we all headed out to the pier for the ash spreading. Afterward several of the crew went out on a sailboat, and others hung around and relaxed on the pier. Later in the afternoon, Bill, Tim, and Dad showed off with coordinated back-flip dives off the Don Lee diving platforms. Tim, of course, stole the show with multiple 2.5 (maybe a 3.5?) turn dives. As they were exiting and getting ready for dinner, I said my goodbye's and left for Asheville around 4:30 p.m.
Here are some pictures.
